    Care Instructions

    STEP 1: Using a damp cloth or sponge, lather our Saddle Soap and apply onto leather to clean and restore its natural oils.

    STEP 2: Moisturize the shoes with our Cream Polish to make them supple and soft, following instructions on the product.

    STEP 3: Condition the shoes with our Speed Polish, protecting them from dirt, rain and snow.

    STEP 4: Take our Heel dressing applicator and apply to the edge of the heel and sole.

    STEP 5: Apply our Leather Lotion as needed for added protection and polish in between cleanings. Use our Horsehair Shine Brush to buff shoes to a desired shine.

    *For camo printed leather, simply rub our Leather Lotion onto print with our Cotton Flannel Polishing Cloth as needed and wipe smudges or dirt away with a damp cloth.

    Relaxed Fit

    The relaxed fit has added space in the toe box. This extra room allows for thicker socks and foot expansion that occurs at the end of the day or during a long flight.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT OVERALL BOOT This is my first "low" type boot (I usually wear cowboy boots) that I can wear casual and business-friendly. I wear a "B" width and that is hard to find in most any shoe or boot, so I was thrilled to find these in my size. I wish the heel was a bit narrower but overall it fits well. Nice quality leather, although I think if I were to do over again I would not want the textured leather. But overall I am quite satisfied and recommend this.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Bought a first quality after returning a factory second. Opened the box and my wife noticed the left boot tongue was not centered I began examining and found left boot again had a inside piece of leather a different shade. I put the boots on a even surface and again left boot was about a half inch higher sole was even as was the heel strange. For the price of a first quality boot there should be no issues I returned the boots and did not purchase another pair. I’m not new to Allen Edmonds own five pair but what is happening with quality control

    What kind of belt would you wear with the brown colored leather?

    Asked by: Bobby

    How will this boot compare to the Higgins Mill Boot with Chromexcel Leather over time?

    Will this leather have the same patina in a few years?
    Asked by: Christian
    Hello, Thank you for your inquiry! The weatherproof boot is built to be more durable overtime. Please keep in mind the leather that is used to make this boot and the chromexcel leather are treated differently.

    How "dressy" is this boot?

    Can the black boot be worn with business casual, or a tie, and still look proper?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes, definitely. I wear my boots to work 'business casual' and receive compliments. Walk through winter slush and slop worry free.
